Solution for black screen in Instagram on BlueStacks 5

How do I resolve this?

If you come across a black screen while switching from "Post" to "Reels" in Instagram on BlueStacks 5, you can resolve it by setting "Pixel density" to "320 DPI (High)" within BlueStacks Settings as shown below.

1. Launch BlueStacks 5 and click on the "gear" icon on the Side toolbar to open the BlueStacks 5 settings menu.


2. Navigate to the "Display" tab, set "Pixel density" to "320 DPI (High) and click on "Save changes".


3. A pop-up will then appear asking you to restart BlueStacks 5 for the changes to be applied. Click on "Restart now".


4. After BlueStacks 5 restarts, launch "Instagram" by clicking on its icon on the home screen.


You can now easily switch between Posts and Reels without coming across any black screen in Instagram on BlueStacks 5.
